The St. James: The Premier Sportsplex in Northern Virginia
There's something to be said of where you play. From the opening creak of Coliseum gates letting in ancient Roman gladiators to the pitching closers of Boston Red Sox's Fenway Park or the cacophony of 90,000 strong echoing upon the Wembley Stadium pitch, a game at a classic venue always seems to mean more.
Sports have a purity to them no matter where you're watching. But on internationally recognized hallowed athletic grounds, the proceedings transcend with a new air of gravitas. The players and crowd enmeshed with the vastness of the place, its immeasurable lore of legends aloft in the ether as they become part of living history in real-time, infusing the match with unmistakable magic. It's not only a game – it's a cultural event.
An Experience Unlike Any Other
And Fairfax County is home to the next classic sports venue of the 21st century: welcome to The St. James. A shining athletic cathedral nestled in Springfield, VA, most awe-struck visitors always have the same response:
"We've never seen anything like this before."
And you haven't. Strictly by the numbers, the 450,000 square feet of The St. James house a FIFA-regulation soccer field, a pair of NHL ice rinks, four gleaming NBA hardwood courts, a gymnastics studio, and an Olympic swimming pool (complete with Italian marble). But that's only the beginning.
Squash courts. Golf simulators. Batting cages. An entire health club. And we're still just talking sports. The amenities include their signature Vim & Victor restaurant from the mind of DC star chef Spike Mendelson, the indoor playground wonderland of Super, Awesome & Amazing for the kids, a 6,000 square foot water park for families, an in-house spa in Courted, and the apparel store Strivers. You could live here.
